What is an Insurance Backed Guarantee?
An Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) is a cost effective, long term insurance policy, which provides valuable protection for consumers when undertaking home improvement projects such as double glazing.
The principle of an Insurance Backed Guarantee is to honour the terms of the written guarantee, originally issued by the installing contractor, where that contractor has ceased to trade as defined within the policy document and is therefore unable to satisfy claims against that guarantee.
